SolverFinish Function

Office 2007

Tells Microsoft Office Excel what to do with the results and what kind of report to create when the solution process is completed.

Before you use this function, you must establish a reference to the Solver add-in. In the Visual Basic Editor, with a module active, click References on the Tools menu, and then select the Solver.xlam check box under Available References. If Solver.xlam does not appear under Available References, click Browse and open Solver.xlam in the \office12\library\Solver subfolder.

SolverFinish(KeepFinal, ReportArray)

ReportArray   Optional Variant. The kind of report that Excel will create when Solver is finished: 1 creates an answer report, 2 creates a sensitivity report, and 3 creates a limit report. Use the Array function to specify the reports you want to display — for example, ReportArray:= Array(1,3).


This example loads the previously calculated Solver model stored on Sheet1, solves the model again, and then generates an answer report on a new worksheet.

SolverLoad LoadArea:=Range("A33:A38")
SolverSolve UserFinish:=True
SolverFinish KeepFinal:=1, ReportArray:=Array(1)
